M.C. Escher

A curious tiling of black and white triangles with curved sides, enclosed within a circle, each triangle alternately colored progressively getting smaller as they approached the circles perimeter.This is the image that inspired M.C. Escher to create four pieces of art called the Circle Limit Series.Even the best artists get there inspiration from somewhere.M.C. Escher got his inspiration from H.S.M.Coxeter, who was a famous mathematician at the University of Toledo.
Many of Escher's pieces of work stems off from basic principles of curved geometry.The idea of curved geometry is explained well through this example; If you draw any triangle on sheet of paper and add up the three angles, the result is always 180 degrees.This however is not true on a curved surface, here the angles always add up to less than 180 degrees.This is called a hyperbolic pattern.His other works included many different pieces of work.Most of these resembled infinity because Escher was drawn to it since he was very young.An example of this is the Waterfall.It's a drawing showing a waterfall that never ends yet it goes in a circle, it doesn't get pushed back up to the top, however, it falls there.
In more recent day's mathematicians, computer scientists, and others have a variety of speedy computer-based methods for automatically printing the hyperbolic patters that Escher was able to draw himself.
The Dutch artist M.C. Escher was a very talented Dutch artist who's work would only be attempted by computer these days.Our society has a tendency to rely on them a lot even when they are not needed.Most people will pick up a calculator to solve -25*-4 although the solution is an easy one (100).Escher was a talented artists who's work is still admired today.
